It's March, which means one thing: It's time to find truTV on the cable guide again! The network is one of several that will carry this year's March Madness, men's college basketball's thrilling tournament to decide a national champion. It also happens to be the greatest sporting event of the year and a great way to put off doing those TPS reports during work. Along with truTV, games will be shown starting Mar. 15 on CBS, TNT and TBS, with the championship game tipping off on Apr. 2.
If you aren't around a television because something like "a job" gets in the way, you do have a few options. The NCAA has its own streaming site for the games (complete with a Boss Button), but it requires a linked account to a traditional cable carrier. For cord-cutters, SlingTV is an option for games on TNT, TBS and truTV, but for the marquee games featuring North Carolina, Duke and other big schools on CBS, you'll want to give CBS All Access or the sports-friendly fuboTV a try, as both carry live CBS feeds.
March Madness only gets more surprising each year as college basketball inches towards parity and even the Ionas and Davidsons of the tournament become threats, so this year's tourney should follow suit.
